Gate to Hades

In the opera of Orpheus and Eurydice, Act 2 Scene 1, Orfeo is on his way down to Hades to request the resurrection of his wife, whose life had suffered death by a snake bite. My virtual interpretation of Hades includes an electrifying alternative appearance as to how it is typically portrayed. Upon arrival to the cave, Orpheus realizes it is no easy path before him, full of specters and furies. Taking his trusty lyre, he plays his way forward and parkours across the floating chained platforms to finally arrive at the final gate, where the Eye of Judgment determines his entry.
